NEW TECHNICAL ERRORS


J. has closely analyzed, cross-checked and examined the 1975 Tom & Jerry cartoons to find several flubs, goof-ups, mistakes and errors evident in them. This page is the result of her exhaustive research. See if you can spot other errors!


 

80-03 "No Way, Stowaways"

  1. The boomerang cannonball seems to sail on a very level path. However, when it comes back, it flies in a curve, seemingly from much further away than the previous scene suggested.
  2. When the "crow's nest," containing Tom and Jerry, comes down, it goes over the keypad, despite the fact that there is obviously no room for this to happen.
  3. Tom gulps way too soon at the captains implication that he and Jerry will have to walk the plank.
  4. There is a blue background with a close-up of Jerry, despite the fact that the previous scene suggested that parts of the ship can be seen in the background.
  5. Tom and Jerry go off the plank feet first, but catch the plank with their lower appendages (Tom's foot and Jerry's tail).
  6. Again with the "blue background" glitch, this time with the captain.
  7. The captain is suddenly much further away in relation to the plank.
  8. When Tom saws of the plank, and his end falls, it falls through the ship.
  9. The rope on the anchor grows when Tom throws it.
  10. When Tom climbs the net with the cannonball, what is he standing on?
  11. When Tom mops the deck, he rides in a "U" shape, heading stage right. However, in the next shot, despite the fact that he was already far away from the captain and closer to the viewer, he finishes the ride on the first branch of the U, close to the captain.
  12. The captain's eyes are peeking through the portholes. However, in a subsequent shot, his entire face is looking through one porthole.
  13. Tom and Jerry take cannons out of a bin and head off, in a straight line, stage left. When a wave causes the boat to tip, Tom, Jerry, and a cannonball fall in a straight line, stage right, into the captain's cabin.
  14. The captain points, stage left, to the cannonballs. In the next shot, which immediately follows, he points at them, stage right, with the opposite hand.
  15. Jerry goes stage right to get the cannonballs. The previous scene suggested the cannon, where he was supposed to put the cannonballs, was there. Jerry runs back on, stage right, and goes off, stage left, to the cannon.
  16. Tom seemingly teleports, with Jerry, to the plank.
  17. Tom seemingly teleports away from the plank.

80-02 "The Ski Bunny"

  1. In the scene where Tom and the female cat ski off into the distance, the female cat's left ski pole goes behind a tree that is obviously very far away in relation to her. The same thing happens with Tom's tail.
  2. The confused perspective in the aforementioned scene suggests that Tom and the cat are bigger than the trees.
  3. In a close-up of Tom, there is a pure blue background, despite the previous and subsequent suggestion of more snowy background behind him.
  4. Tom is suddenly flying on his skis, after being on the ground just seconds ago. It doesn't show how he manages to get up in the air.
  5. How Tom jumps vertically out of the straps on his skis, during the scene where he's showing off, is anyone's guess.
  6. In the showoff scene, Tom does a headstand on his skis. In the next shot, he is walking on his hands with his feet in the skis.
  7. In a close-up shot of the female cat, there is a pure blue background, despite previous and subsequent suggestion of more snowy background behind her.
  8. The aforementioned "blue background" glitch happens again when the female cat is skiing with Jerry.
  9. How Tom jumps vertically out of his ski straps is anybody's guess.
  10. The "blue background" glitch happens again, this time with Spike skiing towards Tom and Jerry.
  11. The top of Spike's muzzle is painted darker brown in the close-up of him skiing.
  12. Spike flies into a trashcan, which is in a path that Tom, Jerry, and the cat skied through. It wasn't there before.
  13. When Tom pushes Jerry away, Jerry's skis change size.
  14. When Jerry gets pushed into the bottom of the tree, how he manages to go upwards in it is anybody's guess.
  15. Tom had pushed Jerry off stage left, indicating that Tom, Jerry, and the female cat were skiing (slowly) behind him. However, when Jerry quickly returns, his path indicates that Tom and the female cat are now in front of him. There is nothing to indicate that Tom and the female cat had, or even should have, passed the tree that Jerry was pushed into.
  16. Again, the "blue background" glitch, with Tom.
  17. When Tom falls off the ski lift, he doesn't fall far before landing on Spike.
  18. Again with the "blue background" glitch, with Tom and Spike.
  19. The female cat's pants change color.
  20. As Tom skis into the dog, his hat remains frozen above his head, defying gravity.
  21. Again with the "blue background" glitch, with Spike.
  22. When Tom is chased by Spike, they turn around and go back the way they came. Tom skis in a "snow loop" that wasn't there before.
  23. Jerry gets to the ski lift (wherever that is), to rescue Tom, way to quickly.
  24. When Jerry lassos Tom with the rope, Tom is on the stage left side of the mountain. When Jerry pulls him up, Tom is on the stage right side of the mountain-- which has suddenly changed color.
  25. Again with the "blue background" glitch, this time with Tom and Jerry.
  26. Tom and Jerry get back to the cabin, to escape the snowball, way too quickly.
  27. As Spike and the female cat ski off into the distance, the female cat's left ski pole goes behind a tree that is obviously very far away in relation to her. The same thing happens with Spike's right ski pole.
  28. The confused perspective in the aforementioned scene suggests that Spike and the cat are bigger than the trees.

80-01 "Stay Awake Or Else..."

  1. It is never clear where the back of the tent ends and the ring itself begins.
  2. Tom enters the tent in the beginning stage right. It cuts to Jerry and then back to Tom. He enters stage left. There isn't much continuity here.
  3. Jerry shushes Tom and points stage left. It isn't clear where the ringmaster is in relation to Tom and Jerry.
  4. When the ringmaster startles Tom awake, Tom shoots up, stage right, hits the top of the tent, comes back town, bounces again back to the exact same part of the tent roof as before. He comes to a halt stage left of where he began, despite having traveled stage right.
  5. Tom keeps snoring but his mouth doesn't move when Jerry pulls on his whisker. I believe this was a case of cutting corners? :)Tom also "conveniently" stops snoring again when Jerry opens his eye (which is much bigger than the other).
  6. The clock headphones are facing one way when Jerry takes them, but facing the opposite when when they're on Tom's head, with nothing to explain the change.
  7. The jack keeps making noise even after Jerry's done raising it.
  8. The noisemaker is much too long!
  9. Tom's eyes are yellow, yet Jerry paints the glasses white.
  10. When the ringmaster says "or it's out you go!" his foot is seemingly "inside" of the object to his right.
  11. How Tom is standing after the marionette scene is anybody's guess.
  12. Jerry pushes the broom off screen one way, and brings it on screen facing the other way.
  13. How the skates get on Tom's feet is anybody's guess!
  14. Tom is all too suddenly out in center ring.
  15. Tom comes into center ring...but wasn't he already there?
  16. Tom falls into the cannon backwards yet comes out forwards.

80-04 "No Bones About It"

  1. The short cop is suddenly not on screen, despite his previous close proximity, when the tall cop asks if anybody else is in the building.
  2. When Tom and Jerry chase the dog it is unclear where they are coming from and where the dog is in relation to them.
  3. When Tom starts operating the jack, the dog isn't near him, but in the next shot the dog is.
  4. The sign CIRCUS TODAY was not on the lion in the previous shot when T&J walk past. Suddenly it is.
  5. Jerry's "roar" continues even after his mouth is closed.
  6. Tom grabs the bone and runs off screen right. Suddenly, he and Jerry come in screen right in a completely different scene. Again, continuity error.
  7. In the alley scene, nothing is holding the bone when Tom ties a bow around it.
  8. Tom and Jerry were trapped in a dead end, yet, they run off stage left (where the dead end is) seemingly through the wall!
  9. The rope gets longer when it flies into the mechanical claw.
  10. Another inexplicable changing of scenes when the dog chases Tom and Jerry at the end.

80-05 "An Ill Wind"

  1. Jerry's chair is suggested to be in an "up" position. However, when he walks off of it, it's on the same plane as the ground.
  2. Tom and Jerry suddenly "teleport" away from where they were relaxing.
  3. The closeup thirsty man is against a blue background, despite prior suggestion of the desert in the background.
  4. When the thirsty man hands Jerry the map, there is a boulder behind Jerry where there was none before.
  5. The "blue background" glitch again, this time with Tom.
  6. The "blue background" glitch again, this time with Tom's hand.
  7. Again with the "blue background" glitch, with a closeup of Tom.
  8. Tom's hand is way too close to the ground when Jerry bandages it. The previous shot showed Tom standing completely upright.
  9. Another "blue background" glitch, with both Tom and Jerry.
  10. Tom's eyebrow is somehow in front of the bandage on his head.
  11. Again with the "blue background" glitch, this time with Black Barney.
  12. Again with the "blue background" glitch, with Black Barney.
  13. When Jerry tries to take the map from under Black Barney's foot, there is a boulder behind Jerry where there was none before.
  14. For the next four closeups of Black Barney, the "blue background" glitch happens again.
  15. When Tom and Jerry point to each other in one scene, Tom's left arm disappears for a couple frames.
  16. When Tom and Jerry try to steal the map while Black Barney is asleep, they enter with Tom on stage left and Jerry on stage right. However, when Jerry hands Tom the peeler, their positions are reversed.
  17. Black Barney's arm is obviously very long if he can scratch and swat his foot, while he's asleep, without sitting up.
  18. Black Barney is obviously very flexible if he can sit up and reach his head out to his feet.
  19. In the scene where Tom and Jerry pretend to be rattlesnakes, Black Barney continues to laugh after his mouth is closed.
  20. In one scene, Black Barney's hand is disproportionately large.

  4. There was a picnic basket next to Tom and Jerry in a prior scene. It is no longer there.
  5. When Tom turns on the radio, the bully cat and his beach towel are not next to Tom. In the next shot, they are.
  6. The foreshortning on Tom, when he's laying down and the bully cat turns the radio off, is awkward.

  12. The next shot suggests that the pipe has gotten much longer.
  13. When Tom and Jerry, who were playing badmiton, see the bully run into Spike, their badmiton net is no longer there.
  14. The net is back in the next shot, and it seems it has conveniently moved for Spike to use it as a slingshot to fire the bully cat across the beach.
  15. When the wave comes crashing on the bully cat, he is facing stage right. When the water clears, he is facing stage left.
  16. The last unbroken piece of the surfboard that the bully cat is riding on changes size from one shot to the next.

  25. Again with the "blue background" glitch, this time with the bully cat.
  26. Spike gets pulled under a dock, even though it's already suggested that he's been pulled far out in the water.
  27. Spike and the bully cat meet on the side of the water that Spike started being pulled from.
  28. Where Tom and Jerry are in relation to the bully cat and Spike, as they watch Spike teach the bully cat a lesson, is unclear.

80-07 "Mammmoth Manhunt"

  1. In the establishing shot of the TV, you can see only one person on TV. When it cuts to close-up, you can see two people on TV.
  2. Either the voice of the narrator on TV and the voice of the news reporter are the same, or the reporter has just done a remarkable feat of ventriloquism when announcing that the mammoth has escaped.
  3. Jerry seems to teleport over to the door between his initial sneak with the fly swatter and his actual arrival at the door.
  4. Tom and Jerry are standing next to the door when the mammoth is outside. However, the way the cuts from Tom and Jerry to the mammoth are done, it appears Tom and Jerry are directly across from the mammoth.
  5. When the mammoth tells Tom and Jerry that he wants to go home, Tom and Jerry are holding a broom and flyswatter. In the next shot, these items are gone.

  9. When Tom and Jerry open the door for the cop, there is a lamp in the background where there wasn't one before. 10. There is a window on the outside of the house, to the right of the door. There isn't one on the inside. Instead, there is a framed picture.

  16. When the mammoth passes the seesaw, there is one background. In the shot where he is on the seesaw, he's on a different background.
  17. Again with the "blue background" glitch, this time with the mammoth and Jerry.
  18. The zookeeper, with his net, clearly fell in the path of the seesaw. However, when he lands, the seesaw isn't there.
  19. The zookeeper places the last of the peanuts, and travels a long distance, way too quickly.
  20. The zookeeper somehow teleports from his hiding place in the bush to his position next to the cop and the cage for the mammoth.
  21. The trail of peanuts seemingly ends in the same place it begins; i.e. the continuity between the beginning and end of the trail isn't clear.
  22. The mammoth sucks the peanuts through his trunk, and then is chewing on them with his mouth in the next shot.
  23. The distance between the "hiding bush" and the mammoth changes.
  24. Once again, the zookeeper teleports between the "hiding bush" and the cage.
  25. The zookeeper is ranting in front of the cage. However, a subsequent close-up suggests that the cage is no longer behind him.

  30. Again with the "blue background" glitch, this time with the zookeeper.
  31. The rope at the edge of the pier, which the zookeeper throws, was not in the previous shot. It seems to appear out of nowhere.
  32. The rope seems to grow in order to reach the ship.
  33. The zookeeper falls a short distance to the water, indicating that he wasn't as high above the water as previously suggested.

  15. When Tom laughs at Jerry throwing the disc in the discus throw, his proximity the audience changes.

  22. In this same scene, the background has changed somewhat from the prior one where Jerry first jumped down the hole.
  23. When Jerry bows to Tom, the background behind him changes from dirt to grass.
  24. When Tom pushes the metal/gopher detector, with Jerry on it, Jerry points to the hole. Suddenly, Tom is off camera, and comes back with the bowling ball. Another case of apparent teleportation.
  25. The tree stump that Tom climbs on wasn't there before.
  26. When Tom gets pulled down the hole, he is the same size in relation to the tunnel that Jerry was.

  31. The gopher, chewing on the carrot, is in front of a blue background, despite prior suggestion of more elaborate scenery.
  32. The gopher hole is against yet another background.
  33. The trashcan that Tom deposits the gopher in seems to be where the hole was.
  34. When the gopher pushes Tom into the trashcan and sends him to the city dump, the scene with the "city dump" sign seems to not have any continuity with the previous scene.
  35. The city dump is rather small.
  36. In the scene where Tom and Jerry spray the inside of the gopher's hole, the background changes between the close-up and the following wide shot.
  37. The bulldog's doghouse is missing a wall.
  38. It also seems that the dog and doghouse have moved from where we last saw them.
  39. The gopher's hole is against yet another background.
  40. Tom, Jerry, and the bulldog are hiding behind a tree that was established as having no branch stubs, and then one. It now has two.

  45. Somehow, Tom and the bulldog, in addition to Jerry, manage to jump down a gopher-sized hole without any trouble.

80-11 "The Super Bowler"

  1. When the audience laughs at Jerry in the beginning, they are against a blue background, despite prior suggestion of a more "diverse" background.
  2. It isn't clear where the judge is in proximity to Tom and Jerry, or anybody else. He actually appears to be outside, suggested by the sky-blue background.

  4. Throughout the cartoon, the balls in the ball caddy change colors from shot to shot.

  9. When Tom replaces a bowling pin with a trick pin, he seemingly teleports from the inside of the pinsetter to the outside.
  10. When he comes back to the alley, it is, again, unclear where he got there and where the scene is in relation to the last.
  11. In the scene in which Jerry waits for the pinsetter to replace the pins, the trimming on the ball caddy in the background is a different color. It was brown before, and is now black.

80-20 "Tricky McTrout"

  1. Tom and Jerry's alarm clock is not hanging over the water. However, the camera pans straight down from it and into the water.
  2. The pan goes straight down to Tricky Mc Trout. He swims straight up and comes out of the water in a completely different area than that of the pan.
  3. The establishing shot of the campsite is different from the one shown when Tricky McTrout wakes up Tom and Jerry.
  4. The forest ranger is standing with a mountain in the background. In the close-up shot, the mountain is no longer there. Just a blue background.
  5. The background behind Tom and Jerry, after they are jolted out of bed by Tricky McTrout, changes from one shot to the next.
  6. In the scene where Tom and Jerry decide to catch Tricky McTrout, the background is different from that in the previous shot.

  8. It's unclear how Tom and Jerry's boat broke.
  9. When Tom puts on his diver's helmet, he is sitting down. In the next shot, he is standing up.
  10. When Tom goes underwater, he is missing his tail.

  12. Jerry picks up the box with the trick lure in it. In the next shot, it is on the floor of the boat.
  13. Tom and Jerry send the lure down near their boat. When Tricky McTrout comes up, he goes straight up yet does not end up anywhere near the boat.
  14. When the lure reaches Tricky McTrout at the bottom of the lake, the background changes a number of times.
  15. In the scene where Tricky McTrout imitates a duck, it is unclear where he is in relation to Tom and Jerry.

  23. When Tom and Jerry poke their heads in the bathtub, it appears that Tom stuck his head through the bathtub wall.

80-13 "The Tennis Menace"

  1. When Jerry laughs at Tom in the beginning, there is a sky blue background behind Jerry, despite prior suggestion of a more detailed background.
  2. In the scene where Jerry's tennis partner, Yvonne, is standing next to the net, the perspective on the net is drawn awkwardly.
  3. In a scene where Tom falls down trying to hit the ball back to Jerry, the racquet is swung in a backwards motion, yet the ball manages to fly forwards.
  4. When Tom and his tennis partner, Big Bertha, go to shake hands with Jerry and Yvonne, Tom is caught in the net and spinning around. Yet, a quick cut to the next shot shows Tom on the ground, shaking hands with Jerry.
  5. In a scene where Tom hides behind the bushes to turn on the ball machine to send a barrage of tennis balls to Jerry, a close-up of his hand indicates a blue background. Tom is hiding in green bushes. This shot was obviously reused from one in the beginning, where a blue background (the wall of the court in relation to the ball machine) was appropriate.
  6. It is unclear where Tom is shooting the test ball, in relation to where he hides.
  7. It is unclear, in the next scene, where Tom is (manually) serving the ball in relation to where he stands.

  12. Tom swings his giant racquet in a downward path, yet the ball bounces up when he hits it with said racquet.
  13. When Tom gets trapped in his giant racquet, he gets hurled into a wall that wasn't there before.
  14. At the end, the tennis ball machine seems to have materialized out of nowhere.
  15. When Tom accidentally assaults himself with the barrage of tennis balls, he runs to fend them off with racquets. Continuity suggests he did this way too quickly and grabbed the racquets way too quickly.
  16. The net small and placed very low.
  17. Tom and Jerry's sizes in relation to the stadium change throughout the cartoon.
  18. The size of the court in relation to the stadium changes throughout the cartoon.
  19. The lines on the court change constantly throughout the cartoon.

  7. The angle at which the fishing line pulled Tom into the tree is different than the angle suggested when he is in the tree in the next shot.

  13. When Spike pulls the plug, Tom and Jerry are sitting in the chair. In the next shot, when Spike says he wants quiet, Tom and Jerry are standing next to Spike.
  14. The merchant who sells Tom and Jerry the costumes refers to them as the "TV special, the ever popular Cosmic Cat And Meteor Mouse outfits." It seems he can't decide whether he's talking about the show or the costumes.
  15. Where Tom and Jerry are in the store, in relation to the merchant, is unclear.
  16. When the merchant pulls out the story record, it is unclear where he, and the record, are in relation to Tom, Jerry, and the rest of the store.
  17. When Tom and Jerry test the record, it is unclear where they are in relation to the rest of the house.

  27. Between shots, CC&MM's sizes change in proportion to T&J's house.
  28. In the scene where the real Cosmic Cat and Meteor Mouse confront Spike, some shots of Spike show that there is a fence behind him. However, other shots suggest that he is nowhere near the fence.

  30. When Spike motions for Cosmic Cat and Meteor Mouse to stop, his hands appear to be detached from his body.
  31. When Tom and Jerry watch through the window, it is unclear where they are in relation to Spike, Cosmic Cat, and Meteor Mouse.

  6. When Tom and Jerry escape through the graveyard, it is unclear how they got there, and where the graveyard is in relation to the castle.

  13. Where the armor, which Tom and Jerry hide in, is in relation to the previous shot is unclear.
  14. Tom and Jerry hide behind a curtain. Where it is in relation to the "armor scene" is unclear.

  16. In the same scene, Tom appears to be about the height of the room.
  17. Tom and Jerry have seemingly teleported to the upside-down room.
  18. In the upside-down room, Tom and Jerry's sizes in relation to the room change throughout the scene.
  19. When Tom and Jerry jump into the ceiling lamp, it is unclear where the lamp is in relation to the rest of the room.
  20. When Tom and Jerry open the door, they are facing the wall. In their reaction shot to the ghost coming in the room, they are facing away from the wall.
  21. When Tom taps his fingers on the ceiling/floor, the background is brown, despite prior suggestion of more background details.
  22. When Jerry runs behind the revolving wall, we can see Tom running in the opposite direction. It is unclear where he is in relation to Jerry.

  27. When Tom and Jerry hide in the piano, it's unclear how they got there and where it is in relation to the prior scene. It seems to be in a room that they ran through when coming back in the castle. However, it was not there in that scene.
  28. The ghost is nowhere near the piano (and it is unclear where he is at all), but in the next shot he's being pushed by it, heading stage left.
  29. When Tom and Jerry, in the piano, bounce down the stairs, it is unclear where the stairs are in relation to everything else, and how Tom and Jerry got there.

  2. In a closeup of the forest ranger's head, we can see a blue background, despite prior suggestion of the forest around him.
  3. It is unclear where the bears and moose are in relation to Tom, Jerry, and the forest ranger. Therefore, when the moose is in the tree, it's unclear how he got there and where he is in relation to everything else.
  4. When the bear cub starts to chase the bee, the bee is right in front of him, near the ground. In the next shot, it is high up in a tree.

  2. It also seems that the witch's house is bigger inside than outside.
  3. When the witch goes to the wall with the secret button, she goes back to the direction she came from-- where the chimney was, which is no longer there.
  4. A dresser and broom, which were not in the previous scene, are now here.
  5. Continuity suggests that Tom and Jerry ascend on the broom way too quickly.
  6. Tom and Jerry run towards the chimney. There is a door there instead.
  7. When Tom feels around for the door, which the witch causes to disappear, the perspective on Tom and Jerry is awkward in relation to the wall.

  2. In the close-up of Tom and Jerry, the messy background is no longer there.
  3. The wizard stands next to a table that wasn't there before.
  4. Probably the most inexcusable mistake I've seen so far in these cartoons: when the dog is shown chasing his tail again, if you freeze frame at the right place, the snouts are detached from his face and floating in midair. Most likely this happened as a result of different levels of animation (the dog, and the snout) being shot out of sync with each other (for example, levels A1 and B1 should go together. Perhaps A1 and B4 where shot together instead).
